What is iLead?
The purpose of ‘iLead’, is to create an inclusive and engaging workshop where students are skilled with the tools to build and sustain positive and respectful relationships. With the help of the Queensland Government’s Stop Cyberbullying grant, we are able to offer iLead to regional and rural Queensland schools. Participants will commit to being an ‘Upstander’; confident to take action in the event of an online bullying scenario. During these facilitated tasks students will have an opportunity to:
- Contribute to discussions around what makes a respectful relationship
- Network with students from other schools via speaking to camera and entering conversation in the chat box
- Define personal actions that can have positive impact in their schools and in an online environment
- Be introduced to the definition of an ‘Upstander’, ‘a person who takes action, particularly when the easiest or most acceptable thing to do is nothing’
- Define the behaviours and impact of both a bystander and an ‘Upstander’
- Sign a commitment to be an ‘Upstander’ in their communities and schools
The two hour iLead experience will be live streamed to students in classes across regional QLD schools. Students that participate in the experience will be led through individual workbook reflection, group discussion and interactive activities.
